LBV believes that style sparks community. Beyond bringing people together through gorgeous and affordable designs, LBV aims to facilitate a hub of information, opportunity, and empowerment.
Redefining the concept of the “muse,” all of LBV.’s clothes are inspired by, designed by, and made for strong and confident women who know they are their own work of art.
LBV. believes in embracing and finding beauty in the complexity of our authentic selves. Fashion should not be a mask, but an extension and celebration of who we truly are inside.
In all things that they do LBV. is dedicated to design and purpose. LBV. understands what its community values in a garment. That is why LBV. strives to offer clothes that are ethically and exceptionally well-made.
Elizabeth Kennedy was first appointed as Creative Director of the luxury wear brand LBV in April 2019 and will continue her designer journey into LBV’s high-end direct-to-consumer line now in 2022. Kennedy is regarded as one of the most skilled talents of her generation, and she credits her success to the many years of experience working for some of the most respected designers in the fashion industry.
Kennedy’s talented eye for design has garnered the attention of celebrities and tastemakers in the industry, including Oprah, Mindy Kaling, Sharon Stone, Drew Barrymore, and many more. Shortly after graduating from Parsons School of Design, she secured senior roles at some of the most esteemed fashion houses including Donna Karan Atelier, J.Mendel, and Isaac Mizrahi Couture. Her unique touch is what brings
the LBV. garments alive.
Joss Sackler, Founder
Joss Sackler is the Founder and President of LBV, a creative social club and luxury fashion house. Seeing the void in traditional wine societies, Joss set out to create a club dedicated to the open-minded celebration of culture and design, an idea that also inspired the creation of LBV. If that wasn’t enough, Joss is a trained sommelier.
Familiar with being the only woman in a man’s field, Joss set out to forge a new path by creating the LBV Social Club, to bring women together over design, wine, and culture. Inspired by the talent and confidence of the women in the club, Joss joined forces with fashion designer Elizabeth Kennedy, first, to create a luxury fashion brand, and now, a direct-to-consumer line with the goal of dressing powerful women.
Joss holds a PhD in linguistics from the City University of New York and served a term as President of The Columbia School Linguistic Society. She is fluent in four languages: English, French, Spanish, and Farsi.
